RUSSELL COUNTY, AL (WTVM) – A murder case that haunted the East Alabama community 10 years ago and was dragged out after two trials will once again be revisited in a national murder TV show.

Lisa Graham, the Russell County woman convicted in the murder-for-hire death of her daughter in 2007, will be the subject of a national murder TV show.

The case will be featured Sunday night at 6 p.m. ET/5 p.m. CT and again at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on the show “Snapped” on the Oxygen network.

Graham was found guilty on March 5, 2015, of capital murder in the murder-for-hire plot that killed her daughter, 21-year-old Stephanie Shae Graham in July 2007.

Lisa Graham was convicted in 2015 in the murder-for-hire death of her daughter and was given the death penalty on November 18, 2015.

The jury in her retrial recommended that Graham be sentenced to death, with 10 of the 12 jurors voting for death and the remaining jurors voting for life without the possibility of parole.

Graham was accused of hiring Kenny Walton to kill her daughter. Walton is serving a life sentence after he confessed to the murder.

Stephanie Shae Graham was found shot and killed on Bowden Road (Highway 165) near Cottonton, Alabama. A man driving down a dirt road found her body along the side of the road.

She had been shot six times, her shorts and underwear were down around her ankles, was raped, run over, and left for dead.

The gunman, Kenny Walton, confessed to shooting Shae Graham with a gun belonging to and given to him by Lisa Graham.

Graham's first trial in September 2012 was declared a mistrial when the judge fell ill.

There are other twists in turns that have also surfaced in court, like the motive that suggests Lisa wanted Shae dead because Lisa's husband paid more attention to Shae than he did to her.

Lisa also claimed the two had sexual relations and Shae's drug problem was costing them too much money.
